Comparator 5.03 - Questions

Post by beniha » Wed Jan 09, 2013 3:59 pm

1. Where can I find the multilanguage interface which you offers in the product description at your homepage?

2. I miss a settings tab in Comparator 5.03! Where can I find it?

3. Comparator 5.03 doesn't save any changes (i.e. width of colums)! Why?

In all that points Comparator Pro 4.10 was really the better program!

1. We are working on the translation right now.

2. What do you mean? If you mean the Presets, then adding one will use the current settings. No need to popup with a new window and re-enter the settings again.

3. it suppose to, but your right, it's not working. I'll have that fixed ASAP.

v4 was much slower, and was hard to work with on a laptop because everything is on one page.

Hi again!

Thanks for the response.

I wait with pleasure for the next update.

Meanwhile I discovered another bug in Comparator 5.03!

If one opens V5.03 and clicks on a Preset, not the stored sourcepath opens itself then, but - this is valid at ALL Presets! - in my case allways the same sourcepath "C:\Users\Netuser".
If one clicks on the Preset once again, the sourcepath is headed for then correctly.

This would be also a case for the coming update!

Kind regards,
beniha

Still the same bug in Comparator V5.05 (Wrong sourcepath when opening the first preset)!

Can you try v5.06. I have tested it and it loads the presets properly now.

I've tried V5.06, but I get the same error by opening the first preset.

And I find one mystery more:

If I compare large Folders (i.e. one Folder contains 162 subfolders with a lot of single files), Comparator doesn't finish at the end of the last subfolder, but begins once again with the first subfolder and never ends. I have to stop it manualy, as soon as I see, that the files of the last subfolder is compared. [Comparator Pro 4 works in that Point properly.]
Please have a look at this Problem.

Perhaps you need to delete all your presets and re-enter them. I have tested the presets and they work as they should!

CP will scan both the Source and Destination folders. So what you may see is the Destination files being scanned, which appear to be the same as the source files. i have tested it also on a folder containing more than 4,000 sub folders (100,000+ files) and it does not repeat. How long did you let it run?

1.
I've deleted all presets as you have suppested and then I've reinstalled them all, but the opening of the first presets shows allways the wrong sourcepath.
The correct sourcepath first opens, when I click the same preset once again.
In my registry the source- and destinationpathes of all my presets are set right.
My OS is Windows 8 64bit!

2.
For a compare of one of my voluminous folders I've now waited for a long time and after nearly one hour (58 minutes) comparator finished correctly.
But I think, one hour is much too long.

1. Can you export the registry of your preset and send me the reg file so I can have the exact same presets as you do. All of my tests never had a problem!

2. Perhaps you should un-check "Find duplicates by content" is this will slow down the scan dramatically. If you have 5GB of data to compare, then it means 5GB of data needs to be loaded from your HD to compare duplicates. That's a lot of HD access.

If I open Comparator 5.06 and klick the first preset, the sourcepath in the left field jumps up to "C:\users\netuser" and not to the hole path! Only at the second klick Comparator adopts the full sourcepath. I have full admin rights!

2.
As you can see in the registry keys ahead: DupByContent is always off (0)!

3.
I've stopped the time for comparing the folder D:\Download with all ist subfolders.

This folder contents 29.970 files with together 29.158.339.680 Bytes!
Time was 16 minutes until correct finishing.

My Computer (Processor, 16 Gb RAM, SSD, professionell Graphiccard) is rather fast, because I've to render long videoproductions, which are very CPU- and GPU-intensiv. Do you think, the time is adequately?

Re: Comparator 5.03 - Questions

In the meantime I have tested the programs Comparator 5.06 against Comparator 4.10 on the same machine (Windows 8 Pro 64bit) with the same both presets (1. PD - Download and 2. TE - Software.

The results are as follows:

1. PD - Download
Files: 30.193
Bytes: 29.167.547.489
Time until completion:
a) Comparator 5.06: 19 minutes
b) Comparator 4.10: 2 minutes

2. TE - Software
Files: 176.665
Bytes: 213.148.488.900
Time until completion:
a) Comparator 5.06: After more than 2 hours I have broken the still running process!
b) Comparator 4.10: 19 minutes

I don't understand the considerably difference. What's wrong?

Re: Comparator 5.03 - Questions

Post by Support » Wed Jan 16, 2013 12:17 pm

That's because of 2 things...

1. You have "Compare duplicates by content" enables in v5 but not in v4.

2. You have ran v5 first, keeping most of the file's data in the cache, then v4 will run faster since it uses the cached data.

To make the proper test, turn of or on "Compare duplicates by content" in both v4 and v5.

Reboot and run a scan using v4.
Reboot and run a scan using v5.

This will give you the proper results.

Here are my registry entries:
I have used your registry settings, and when I click on the first preset, it loads properly. I have tried on Win7/64 and Win8/64.

I really don't know what the problem could be, but let me ask, how long is your left file browser when the proper folder is selected? Can you send a screen shot of CP when it does not load properly, and another one when it loads properly?

Where can you see, that in my posted registry presets "Compare duplicates by Content" is set to "Yes"?
In my opinion I have set it ALL to "No", for in ALL cases I see in my registry "DupByContent"=dword:00000000, what means "Compare duplicates by Content" is set to "NO", or isn't it???
So, in BOTH versions (5.06 and 4.10) "Compare duplicates by Content" was set to "NO" in my reported tests!!!

In my tests I have used the SAME machine, but with different Boot-SSDs (the first one with OS Windows 8 Pro 64bit for 5.06 and the second one with OS Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit for 4.10), so it was from each other separated attempts and no cache could falsify the reported results.

Congratulations!

Comparator 5.07 64bit works fine and very fast under Windows 8!

All reported Problems are solved!

The two times for the both comparator runs are as follows:

for the Preset "PD - Download" with 29.158.409.938 Bytes only 0 minutes and 23 seconds;
for the Preset "TE - Software" with 213.145.807.902 Bytes only 4 minutes and 05 seconds!

Good job, great collaboration!
Thanks a lot and good bye
